NGC Certified Silver Eagles
APMEX offers customers NGC graded Silver Eagles to provide the highest quality additions to their collections. NGC is the only independent third-party grading service that works with the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, which is dedicated to the long-term preservation of historical coins. Each encapsulated coin is placed in a tamper-evident holder that protects and certifies the coin's authenticity and condition. These graded pieces can increase demand for the coins because their quality assurance is enhanced after the official grading process.
The Design (1986 to 2021)
The obverse (front) of the coin was taken from the “Walking Liberty,” originally designed by Adolph A. Weinman in 1916. The iconic design had already been a public favorite and one of the most beloved of any United States coinage of modern times, which made it an instant favorite among collectors and enthusiasts once released. The reverse (back) was designed by John Mercanti and portrayed a heraldic eagle behind a shield. The eagle holds a banner in its beak while grasping an olive branch in its right talon and arrows in its left, an image that echoes the Great Seal of the United States. Above the eagle and below the legend are 13 five-pointed stars representing the original 13 colonies.
NOTE: The coins you receive may exhibit some level of natural toning and/or oxidation such as spotting. This is a normal process that and can occur over time when exposed to hydrogen sulfide which is naturally occurring in the air.
